United European Car Carriers (UECC) has joined the United Nations (UN) Global Compact initiative.

The initiative calls on companies to align their strategies and operations with universal principles that prompt ethical business conduct, including human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.

“The principles of the UN Global Compact initiative are in line with the way in which we have conducted our business for years already, and we will ensure that we continue to follow these guidelines, and raise the bar together with global businesses of all sizes and shapes,” said UECC ceo Glenn Edvardsen.

“We are proud to invest time and resources in a global initiative for business conduct and corporate governance that is ethical and sustainable, where people and planet are at the centre for how businesses are run,” he added.
